Janus-faced harlots

Lunchtime, blogtime.

First they were in with the Conservatives. Then they tried to crawl under the sheets and cosy up to the Labour Party. First they were saying that they would work with the party that obtained the most votes. Then they started talking to the battered losers and their discredited Prime Minister. First they talked about stability. Then they started talking about so-called “progressive” coalitions involving the SNP, Plaid Cymru and Caroline Lucas’s pet parrot. Read the rest of this entry »

And so, like Brutus, he falls on his sword

Like the infamous traitor and villian Brutus, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has played his latest desperate hand and fallen on his sword. Secure in the knowledge that Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg would never have worked in and for a Government under his leadership, he has effectively laid bare his party’s naked desire to secure an alliance between them and the Lib Dems.

The Lib Dem voter. And butternut squash risotto.

The Lib Dem voter. And butternut squash risotto.

The recent election campaign was something of a roller coaster for the Liberal Democrats and their leader Nick Clegg. First they shot up in the opinion polls and seemingly established themselves as a potential competitor to the big two, only to blow it comprehensively when the time came for the British people to go to the polls. Unlike previous Lib Dem campaigns however, the story did not end there. Read the rest of this entry »

Political Jiggerypokery and PR

Political Jiggerypokery and PR

The chit-chat is still going on about how the cards are going to fall following the recent election results, with the Labour Party resorting to some rather desperate tactics to cling onto power and keep Gordon Brown or any possible replacement safely housed in Downing Street.

Hung, drawn and quartered.

Hung, drawn and quartered.

So, with the campaigning finally over and the results coming in across the country, we have a hung parliament. The Conservatives made some stunning gains in some areas and failed to meet expectations in others; the rise of the Liberal Democrats in the media was followed by a dramatic fall when it came to the reality of the final figures, and some of the worst Labour Party slimeballs – among them the odious Hazel Blears – still managed to retain their seats. Those that were cast aside included onetime Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, Noddy’s best mate Charles Clarke and Dewsbury’s most famous “imam” and expenses fiddler, Shahid Malik.

Two days to go until polling day – and things are hotting up. Soon, all of the stage-managed propaganda and sloganeering will come to an end – and with it the end of thirteen years of Labour government. Read the rest of this entry »

Brown: The story keeps changing…

Brown: The story keeps changing...

Even I am now starting to feel sorry for soon to be ex-Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Rather than simply admit that he meant what he said – or else why say it? – he just keeps digging. And digging. And digging. Well, he did say that he was going to “dig deeper”… Read the rest of this entry »

Tango man is back…

Tango man is back...

Here’s the scene.

Gordon Brown takes a battering from Messrs. Cameron and Clegg during these new-fangled televised debates, failes dismally at trying to smile for the cameras, and then abuses a member of the public. Cue the entrance of none other than our old friend Tony Blair, looking more orange than ever. Read the rest of this entry »

Down like Brown

Down like Brown

I personally don’t need to be provided with any further evidence to prove that Gordon Brown is a clot – some people may still need some convincing though. His latest electioneering stumble: an insult directed at a Rochdale pensioner who dared to ask him a few rather inconvenient questions. Read the rest of this entry »
